FIRED ART – JULY 1-27, 2023

Elk Grove, June 1, 2023 – The Elk Grove Fine Arts Center presents Fired Art, an art competition, July 1-27, 2023. The Center will open for a First Saturday Public Reception and Awards Presentation on July 1 from 4-7PM.

Many artists create art using a flame or heat. Some of this art takes the form of ceramics and sculpture that bathe in fire to create shapes and glazes. Other artwork uses elements of heat to melt the wax of encaustics. This exhibition celebrates artists who use primal forces to create unique artwork in all mediums.

Fired Art is curated and judged by Freddy Santana, a Sacramento regional ceramic artist and educator.
